Here are Today’s images.






























































TODAY is a weekly jewel box of seemingly random, yet thoughtfully selected, images. At times tender, wicked, nostalgic, amusing, and dazzling, each edition is presented without narration, editing or explanation by its author, designer Eric Baker. "It all began as a goof. One day I sent a good friend about 50 random pictures of cheese. I don't know why, but to me cheese is funny, perhaps it is the word itself and its various connotations. Eventually I began looking closer, or should I say broader at 'things'. Things lost on the fringes...ordinary, odd, beautiful things. Esoteric images, old diagrams, typography, cartography — visions of a once promising but now extinct future."

Editor's Note: All images link to their original source and are copyright their original owners.

Stunning collection of images: a thought-provoking tour through a shared cultural history of the subject. One of the best collections of images, Mr Baker.

The one of the woman unknowingly aiming the gun at the man's head is incredible.

Dead for decades as a desirable object, going by the vintage of these sublime images... until the imminent new age of smoking advertising with the advent of legalization in CA.

Guns, whiskey, and cigarettes, who can ask for anything more? If you have a death wish! I really liked the shoes worn by the lady in the hunting sene. All these pictures were what I actually saw growing up.
